Do you ship to India ?

Vaibhav kanotra says:

Aryeh Lowy says:

Parallax says:

Wear OS is so much better than Tizen on the Samsung Gear. I bought the Gear because I have the S8, but after moving from the Apple Watch, the Gear is just terrible to use, and the lack of apps kills it. One area where Apple win every time is their smartwatches and watch OS. Google’s closing the gap though!

Cory Daza says:

Are you unable to send text messages using voice command if you’re using an iPhone ?

Adil Shaikh says:

When it will be available in India ???

Michelle Adom says:

Hello Fossil. I own iPhone 8 Plus. Can I control my audiobook (from audible app or iBook) from my fossil watch?

Really want to get it but the fact that I can’t answer texts because I have an iPhone sucks

Daniel Tremblay says:

Hey Fossil, is it possible to get your e-mails on this watch ? I have an Iphone 8? How about messenger ? I just ordered the watch. I thought for sure you could receive texts and respond to them as an IOS user ?

KidGloves2112 says:

I can’t seem to find any specs regarding the display. I’m fairly certain it’s OLED because when I was playing with it at Best Buy, I noticed screen burn-in, but what is the resolution/ppi?

Victor Aviles says:

My screen locks every time I try to touch it. Any idea how to fix this issue? Thanks
